As a nation we were furious at President Bush for a $458 billion deficit at the end of his second term. The media pounded the deficits numbers into the brains of voters on a nearly daily basis. Now, the deficit under this President has been averaging over $1.5 trillion per year, over $1 trillion more than Bush's highest year, and they say that the Republicans are playing games? No more talk from the Democrats and the media of how we need to get our fiscal house in order. Only how much more can we spend to keep bloated programs in place. Obama keeps coming up with these 5 and 10 year plans, which sound very Soviet-like, when what needs to happen is a 18 month plan to vote this man and his Marxist/Maoist thugs out of office so they can't do any more damage to this country. As it is, it may take decades to undo the damage that they've done in only two and a half years. Imagine what we would look like after eight years.
